Half of all refugees are children and almost 70% are illiterate. One child refugee told a UN aid worker: “I have no future, my schooling days are over.” Whilst they spend time in exile, it should be used as an opportunity to rebuild their lives. With limited resources and irregular structure throughout camps, I wanted to create something to aid their hearts and minds through the use of their hands and imagination. This packaging aid offers an opportunity to create toys with the benefit of learning basic literacy skills making them more employable in the future.
